[Discussion]Using Mods as Weapons!

If there is a heated discussion on one of our boards, and one of the posters sees poor behavior from another poster, might a warning about going to moderation stop that poor behavior? Are Mods being used as weapons, or is the poster showing courtesy by warning the offending poster that their poor be...

Surely the GOP would support corporate bootlickers. I think both the Republican Party and the Democratic Party have such supporters, but I would not use the word as described above. Yes, I did it again, both sides have it, both sides do it, and it is a logical, objective reality fact. As in like Sp...

Such resolutions are actually routinely introduced with no intention of them ever becoming law. Louie Gohmert is known for saying stupid things, but we shouldn't cast any asparagus on him for this.

Sadly, the real election appears to rest with the electoral college. I don't think it's possible to win the popular vote by 14 points and still lose the EC. If Biden wins by that much in the popular vote & fails to get 300 electoral votes, something is definitely amiss with the Electoral Colleg...

EDITED

Meanwhile, you have no problem assuming Stein voters would've voted for Clinton, had she not run. While the assumption can be implied, it was never explicitly made. To make such an assumption would be intellectually inconsistent. In the age of Trump, we shouldn't just engage in Alternative Facts ju...
